The badge on your car is correct for a '87 to '89 TL.

If you look at the pictures on my 1986 list you will see that most don't have a badge. I put the smaller 993 size Carrera badge on mine because I think it looks better with something in that space.

Sounds like you put a lot of time and money into making this car right again. At least it is still one of the lowest mileage '86 TL coupes that I know of.
Thanks for the info!
